I started practicing carpentry in 1974, but it was 15 years later I started to make sense out of “proportion”, “line”, “space”, and “harmony”. That’s because I spent about 1200 hours in drawing classes at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
To be sure, I never learned to draw like Michelangelo, but I did find out how an artist sees the world, and that made all the difference.
Whether designing a living room bookcase, or restoring an antique doorway on Commonwealth Avenue, I have insights now that no one else could have without a Trained Artist’s Eye.
I do love bookcases, although I’m no longer allowed to visit used bookstores.
My company is equal to almost anything a client can imagine, from custom mahogany cabinetry for MIT, a new Dining Room interior for L’Espalier, restoring a 19th century portico to the look of its original 1906 photograph, or an antique looking banquet table for a mansion in Brookline.
We’ll bring you 37 years of experience as well, and all the creative sensitivity a Trained Artist has at his disposal.
